Published November 28, 1986
SWISS-PROT RELEASE 3.0 Announcing SWISS-PROT release 3.0 Release 3.0 of the SWISS-PROT data bank is now available. The total number of sequence entries has grown from 3939 (in release 2.0) to 4160 and the total number of amino-acids from 900'163 to 969'641. Release 3.0 has been updated using mainly protein sequence data from release 10.0 of the P.I.R(1) protein data bank, as well as translation of nucleic-acid sequence data from release 8.0 of the EMBL data library. Availability of SWISS-PROT. - SWISS-PROT will be available very soon, on-line, on the BIONET resource computer. - EMBL will start distributing tapes of SWISS-PROT in the near future. - PC/GENE American customers can acquire from IntelliGenetics both EMBL and SWISS-PROT on floppy media. - PC/GENE European customers will receive SWISS-PROT release 3 from GENOFIT. The next release. SWISS-PROT release 4.0 will be probably ready in the spring of 1987, it will include new data from P.I.R, translated EMBL sequences (from release 9.0) and sequences entered by the staff of Medical Biochemistry Department of the University of Geneva. A new feature will be introduced in the next release: sequences whose three dimensional structure has been published will have an extra reference data block pointing to the name of the entry in the Brookhaven National Laboratory Protein Data Bank which list atomic coordinates from the crystallographic data. A new keyword: 3D-STRUCTURE will be added to all those sequence entries. A. Bairoch / 28 November 1986. Medical Biochemistry Department. University of Geneva.
